A (in my opinion) very talented group of guys who despise the word 'emo'. The amazing band consists of Ray Toro - lead guitar, Frank Iero - rhythm guitar, Mikey Way - bass, Bob Bryar - drums, & the wonderful Gerard Way - vocals.

I am aware that a lot of you who read this will be like 'oh its an emo kid' or 'they're so emo' BUT. They're not emo, if you actually listen to the lyrics, they are an ANTI suicide band. For example, the song Famous Last Words states: "I am not afraid to keep on living, I am not afraid to walk this word alone." & So on & so forth.

My Chemical Romance has 3 studio albums - I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love; Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge; & The Black Parade. 2 Live CD/DVDS - Life On The Murder Scene & The Black Parade Is Dead!

Their most popular songs are Helena, I'm Not Okay (I Promise), Welcome to the Black Parade, Teenagers, & Famous Last Words.
I personally did not hear all of their songs on the radio, I found them, so there may have been more mainstream songs, I don't know.

MCR (as they are often abbreviated) formed in the time of 9/11. Gerard was on his way to work in NY & saw the bodies falling/jumping out of the building. At that point he though what am I doing with my life?
He decided to call up some old friends & formed the band. The original drummer, Matt Pelissier, was in the band when it formed, obviously. He later was fired because of his poor performance & lack of devotion to the band.

As for where the name came from, Mikey & Gerard were working at Barnes & Noble. Mikey saw the words 5 Tales of Chemical Romance on the back or inside of a book (whose author I forget). When he joined the band, he thought he should add My to it to give it a twist. From then on, they were known as MCR, My Chem, & My Chemical Romance of course.

Future plans - 2009: They recently filmed a music video for their cover of Bob Dylan's 'Desolation Row'. MCR recorded this song for the movie 'The Watchmen', which will be in theaters in March. My Chem is also set to record an album sometime this year, claimed to be 'early 2009'.

In conclusion, a great band... in my opinion.
Normal 11 year old: OMGOMGOMG DON'T YOU LOVE MILEY CYRUS!!!!!!!!!


Me - logical 11 year old: Bleh, disgusting. My Chemical Romance for the win!

Normal 11 year old: Hu dat?!!!!??!!!!

My Chemical Romance!Hmm?What is there to say except they fucking rock!!!!!I totally love'em!!!And to whoever said that we should listen to the ramones instead,well as a matter of fact I went to their concert wearing a ramones shirt.Well they totally rock,because besides being kick ass rock stars,I saw walking Gerard and Bob walking around before one of their concerts just chillin without bodyguards or any of that crap, and they werent stuck up to smile at me.(Even though I was to shy to go up to them,and i respected the fact that they wanted to keep their presence low key).Well any band that fuckin rocks,and loves their fans as much as they do is a god damn good band!!!I wish them all the luck with their careers and cant wait to go to their next concert!!!-Lizette
"Also, thanks for coming out to the headlining dates. We saw a lot of old friends, as well as meeting new ones. We didn’t expect so many of you to come, so thanks for rocking out, sweating and bleeding with us. Right now is a really exciting time for us, so thank you all for being part of it and being there with us."-MCR

An amazing band which are hard to describe. Many people class them as emo, but some class the, as punk. 'I'm Not Okay', 'Thank You For The Venom' and 'Helena' are all amazing songs which you should hear. If you dont like them I personally think you should get your faces out of your shitty backsides and start listening to them a bit more :)
And plus I'm seeing them in November lol..

My Chemical Romance isn't any type of music. They are what they are and that's it. Don't think just because some of their songs have meaningful lyrics in them that they encourage suicide and wrist slitting and low self-esteem.The people who judge them after hearing one song or just by looking at their picture need to get over themselves immediatly or we may have a SERIOUS problem on our hands. People think that their fans are depressed emo losers who think there's absolutly no reason to live, well to all of them, I'm proudly addicted to MCR and if you ask people who know me they will say that I'm the happiest, most hyper and random kid you will ever meet, and that I laugh uncontrollably. So there to all those haters, there, take a gander at that! O_O sorry about that. Anywho, also their lyrics have deeper meanings than any of those rap lyrics. And I personally that all rap "songs" if that is what you call them, are extremely degrading to women. But then again, that's just my opinion, preach what you want to, just believe in it yourself first. For all the people who think MCR really doesn't save lives, well, I'm living proof. If it wasn't for MCR I would probably either be dead or completly miserable trying to commit suicide. MCR has helped me through a lot, and they truly are an inspiration in everything they do. They are the most talented people in the world and they don't act lke assholes either because of it. And they don't do any of this at all for the money, they started it to make a difference in the world, and they are still are.
Person 1: MCR is emo shit that makes you want to die.
Person 2: Uh-huh, sure it is, and how many songs have you heard?
Person 1: Ummm......well, there was that one...
Person 2: Exactly. Before you make a statement about something, actually have some facts on it.

My Chemical Romance is an awesome band who people judge because they have nothing else to do with their shitty lives, end of story.

They aren't punk, they're emo. Punk is Ramones, Social Distortion and Rancid. If you think MCR is punk, you don't know what punk is.
poser:"I'm punk, 'cause I listen to MCR!"

real punk:"Your NOT punk. MCR aren't punk."

A band from New Jersey. Simple as that. Some people like them, some people don't, but personally i think that all the people who come on here saying they are "shitty losers" and saying they "fucking suck" and making other unjustified comments need to get a life and find something better to do than criticise a group of people they don't even know. To the people who say that MCR should die, do you think YOU actually contribute anything to society by slagging off peoples taste in music? This band have helped people, have you? Save your sad, unjustified opinions for when you become someone significant and the world actually gives a fuck about what you have to say. (bit of a rant there, sorry)
They are a band based in New Jersey (who have never claimed to be emo, goth or punk, so stop saying they have), very good live.
Gerard Way-vocals
Mikey Way-bass
Ray Toro-lead guitar
Frank Iero-rhythm guitar
Bob Bryar-drums
They have released 3 albums: I Brought you my Bullets, you brought me your Love, Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge, and the Black Parade, and they also released a live album and DVD set entitled Life on the Murder Scene.
My Chemical Romance are a band from New Jersey. Some like them, some don't, end of.

An awesome band that features five amazing and talented guys: Gerard way, Mikey way, Frank iero, Ray Toro, and Bob Bryar.
They're an alternative rock band, but is also considered to be an emo band. Which is not true since most people consider the term emo as a trend. They are NOT emo for they even said so in an interview. THey are themselves and no one should label them emo.
They're awesome and you should seriously check them out sometimes since their music really speaks the truth.

The world can't always be about lovey dovey stuff as many people write today. it's also about the cruel things that's happening in daily lives and they speak the truth and real emotions that you feel once in your life
Person1: My chemical romance sure rocks
Person2: Of course
Person1: Their songs are really inspirational
Person2: And emotional i mean if more people stop and try to listen to their music maybe they won't consider them as freaks
Person1: They're not freaks it's just many people judge on looks these days
Person2: Definantly that's where the word "cliques" and "labels" were formed.
Person1: Yup they should definantly try to listen to Helena that's a very beautiful song
Person2: No disenchanted
Person1 and Person2: NO THANKS FOR THE VENOM
Person1: Oh man i can't even pick they just make such good songs
Person2: Yup in my opinion i think it's better than those trash lame disney corporations come up with. I mean seriously "I wanna get back get back with you" I mean ever heard of get over it he was probably a jerk more fish in the sea.
Person1: Hmm what about "Burning up"
i mean it starts out with "I"m hot" which is sorta self absorbed if you ask me.
Person2: Yup! But that's the jonas brothers i mean how long do you think it took kevin to get those ugly sideburns or joe to grow out a bushy eyebrows.
Person1: Exactly i mean my chemical romance is really such an amazing band.
Person2: THey inspired me so much.
Meanperson: I think they're stupid
Person1: Gasp how come?
Meanperson: Well i mean the lyrics is shit you can't even understand it
Person2: That's because it's similar to poetry you have to dig deep to find the meaning you can't just expect it to be like those regular songs that have simple lyrics that even a 3 year old can understand.
Person2: Yup MCR ROCKS! AND FUCK ALL YOU HATERS!
